Legal Search Specialists


Sometimes, just a few words can say it all……Legal Search Specialists is considered the premier Boston area Attorney search-and-placement firm by Corporations, Law Firms and Candidates.  Considered the  go-to IN-HOUSE experts and LAW FIRM advisors, we have enjoyed a distinguished relationship with outstanding legal practitioners and leaders in their field.  (Learn more)

The practice of law continually evolves and more likely – has changed forever.  It’s no longer enough for an attorney to be merely competent and knowledgeable in a practice area.  The demands and influences of a changing society, globalization, practice efficiencies, billable time and technology, etc. – now require that attorneys focus on building deeper skill-sets as business professionals and advisor/consultants to their clients and colleagues.

We provide confidential legal search services to our clients on various levels: single attorney placement, a practice group move, Partner or Associate moves or advisory services to companies looking to hire their first General Counsel, Chief Regulatory Counsel or expand their in-house team.  That said, we don’t pretend to be all things to all clients – meaning – we focus on what we know well and have become expert in – that is – understanding our clients’ needs as it relates to the practice of law.  As such, our services focus exclusively on Attorneys.

Meeting Your Needs – Not Ours   (For our Candidates & Clients)

It’s not always complex, and sometimes, it’s simply a matter of common sense.   Be it a company, law firm or a candidate – we begin our relationship by listening carefully to your needs, wants and aspirations.   You’ve worked hard to gain credentials, expertise and professional alliances or for that matter – a seat in the C-Suite or the firm’s Executive Committee – so it’s likely you well know what you want and need in your career or your enterprise.  Our role is to help you achieve that.

Because of the sensitive nature of looking for a new position or conducting a confidential department search, we free you from the concern and worry of conflicts in your present role and discreetly explore the market for you.  We meet with you at your convenience and we will keep in regular contact, but you control the process of determining the outcome regarding long-term goals, lifestyles, preferences, work environment and/or candidate selection.

Bottomline, we take a consultative approach; sharing key insights with you from up-to-date thought-leadership and our knowledgebase and time tested experience.
